Here we have a fantastic and ultra-rare 1920s – 1930s vintage original Continental ‘Hochdruck’ tyre pressure gauge in its original leather pouch. The unit was manufactured in Germany (Deutsche Ware). This tyre pressure meter is suitable for vintage cars running on high pressure tyres and motor cycles. The scale runs from 1 to 5,5 KG/cm (Bar) and 10 to 80 LBS per square inch. The device is not suitable for use on low pressure ‘ballon’ tyres which are inflated up to about 2-2.5 Bar. At low pressures the meter measures 0,5 Bar short. The unit is made of chromed brass and the window is made of transparent celluloid. The unit is in SUPERB original condition, like new! The (Nappa) leather pouch is also in perfect condition! The unit measures (L x W x H) 7.6 x 4.9 x 1.7 centimeters. The unit works quite accurately (-0,5 at low pressures, – 0,15 bar at higher pressures) and the reset-button zeros perfectly.
This vintage original 1920s – 1930s Continental tyre pressure gauge in SUPERB condition will be a gorgeous item for any pre war car and pre war motor cycle enthusiast! It will make your classic motoring experience just that bit more interesting. “Enjoy the Ride!”
